Road Trippin' - Auckland to Rotorua

As I mentioned in my prevous post, often we take little things like road-trips and wide open spaces for granted.

Take a look at the pictures taken on our way from Auckland to Rotorua.

 





A mandatory stop for us along the way was to the Huntly Power Station lookout.  Huntly is about 1 hour and 13 minutes drive from Auckland.  The lookout (as you can see) is opposite the Power Station, which is located on the banks of the Waikato River.

A bit of kiwi-spotting

Our next stop on our way to Rotorua was Tirau.  This is a vibrant little town set in the South Waikato amongst some of New Zealands' most fertile farmland. 

Tirau has it's famous corrugated dog and sheep buildings, seen below.
